Right ear hurts when burping. have mild hearing loss. What could it be?

My right ear hurts when I burp. I was at the ENT to get last week and the doctor told me there was no fluid. I do have mild-moderate hearing loss , however. I also just started taking decongestants to help alleviate pressure. I have also tried holding my nose and gently blowing. Any idea as to what else it may be or what I can do?

Welcome in H.C.M.

I have gone through your query regarding pain and hearing loss in right ear whenever burping is there.

Your symptoms favors that you are having upper respiratory tract infection may be evident or in sub clinical stage.This type of infections usually puts the eustachian tube in dysfunction which results in pain in ear and loss of hearing.

You should do-

1- C.T.Scan of paranasal sinuses.

2- Tympanometry and stapedial reflexes.

3- Culture and sensitivity of throat swab and sputum for AFB.

4- X-Ray chest.

Till the investigations are going on and diagnosis is awaited you may take-

a- Anti histaminic.

b- Tab Paracetamol.

c- Steam inhalation.

d- Antibiotic - this is decided by culture report but till report is awaited you may take any broad spectrum antibiotic.

I hope this will help you.
